First Cuckoo !!

Just heard my first cuckoo of the year, is it early ? I hope it is a sign for a good hot summer !

Cuckoos

Many years ago when I was young, we used to hear them continuously but there just don't seem to be as many around, certainly not in the south of England. Do you expect to hear lots over there Yummy?

Just had a look on your profile - are you back in the UK now?

No ES, still here in Brittany (glorious Brittany today !)

Think something must have been tweaked on my profile, perhaps to do with the changes ??;)

Hoping to hear lots more cuckoos, first thing in the morning is usually the best as it is so peaceful. The birds are waking us up around 4-30 5am at the moment. Lovely !!!

We don't get the common cuckoo in Australia (as far as I know) and the other sorts of cuckoos don't make the typical sound you enjoy hearing!!

But they are a real parasite of a bird!! Really unfair making other small birds raise their relatively huge chicks. Evolution gone very wrong, I feel!!

I heard it yesterday (24th) for first time but neighbours say it had been heard a week ago.

First cuckoo, and swallow

The cuckoo has been cuckoo-ing for a while down our neck of the woods, but I did see the first swallow today. Must be (nearly) summer.
